Day 286: [BELATED] Dig A Little Deeper by Peter Bjorn and John

16 Apr

This song is so optimistic! I adore it so much!

Peter Bjorn and John, who are most well known for their song “Young Folks” (aka the whistle song), released a new CD called Gimme Some back in March. But what’s so great about it is the optimism that it reeks. This band’s music is normally so down that something like “Dig A Little Deeper” just makes you so happy on the inside!

It reminds me of a Swedish version of a Vampire Weekend song, and it’s playful tune makes me sort of dance every chance I get to hear it. I hope it puts you in a good mood, like it does with me!

BELATED PART 2

I’ve also declared today new music day!

More new Peter Bjorn & John! And even if it isn’t as hapy sounding or upbeat as “Breaker, Breaker,” it’s still pretty boss.

Day 61: Young Folks by Peter Bjorn And John

20 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Today I have a short blog post, but I will update a lot longer and more in depth tomorrow about a great day (chronicled in photos).

I bring you a great song, and a cute video made as a project for it. I didn’t make the video, but I stumbled upon it a few years back when the song was in it’s prime.

Day 12: Ode To The Buzz

1 Jun

Hello there! If this is your first time on the website, be sure to check out the about page in the top righthand corner!

Today, I took a specific look at a particular coffee shop that I love: the Buzz. The Buzz is located on the University of Oregon campus, right in the bottom level of the EMU center. Because I live in the dorm area (and crave coffee that I DON’T pay for with cheap points), I tend to gravitate towards the Buzz and chill there.

The next couple of days for me are going to be a living hell: I have three papers due tomorrow, two finals tomorrow, a final on thursday, and an 8 am final on Monday morning. For my hardest class.

In times like these, there is little that can help me feel better about my situation. So, today, I’ve decided to park myself in the Buzz and write my papers, at least getting them right out of the way so I can study for my finals tomorrow.

Sitting here, now, I realize why I love them so much. So, I present you with an ode to the Buzz.

Ode To The Buzz

Someone must’ve stolen my iPod
And hooked it up to the speakers
Here at this sweet coffee shop.
Beck, Radiohead, Kanye, Gorillaz, Peter Bjorn And John.
The smell of the coffee doesn’t distract me for a second
But the music does.
Do I mind?
Not at all.
I feel the cool breeze from the window wall
I smell the fumes of happy treats, on display under glass like a museum
My tastebuds feel warm, or cold, depending on the day.
Even though the weather is dreary outside, the Buzz stays happy.
A cool place to do homework
Write a paper
Or just hang out.
Just remember to be nice to the employees.
And make sure to buy a drink
Or else, you’ll look weird.
Cellphone is dead
Lost in the desert.
One by one I’ll knock you out.
